I always like to show the fish something they don't see on a regular basis. Although hollow body frogs and weightless worms work great, I still like to throw a Johnson Silver Minnow with either a curly tail grub, or the back section of a ribbon tail worm. Let it wobble across the tops of the weeds and when it reaches open pockets, let in drop into them, Same goes for the edge of the weeds. Between the wobble and flash of the spoon and theqaction of the trailer, you can clean up behind guys pounding the weed tops with frogs.

This is what I'd get too....as a matter of fact I have 3 on order. lol. Can't wait to try them out. 

 

 

I have not had a ton of success with frogs because I am not good at walking the dog, however, a Rage Bug weightless T-Rigged is not supposed to be a topwater lure but I've caught a ton of fish using it just like a frog except with a straight retrieve and some stops to let it sink over open spots.

All of the above are great options. If there are some open pockets or weed lines, I'd also recommend a weightless fluke t-rigged. It's very weedless. My favorite is the Yum houdini shad. Walk it fast and it will skitter across the surface, or work it slow with long pauses in open pockets. It's deadly on the fall.

Do some Speed Wormin with the ultravibe from zoom or the paddle tail, Junebug or Green Pumpkin. Or throw a sluggo on the surface, still a killer soft bait just like it was when it blew up when it came out. kind of hard to beat a swimbait over weeds rigged on either a weighted hook or with light bullet weight, sometimes a small punch skirt.

 

Gambler EZ series stays on hooks really well, Skinny Dippers work well, then maybe try either a Horny Toad or something more finesse like the Manns toad. 

 

Or just swim your favorite creature bait like the Rage Bug, Yum Mighty bug is awesome as a swimbait/topwater and not sure why but it is easy to rig weedless, all the appendages seem to make Bass Curious as they often follow it slowly and only strike when you kill it or speed it up. I love the houdini shad as well since you can adjust the tail to make it buzz the top,and or leave it as a paddle tail or a forked fluke, but I figure everyone is throwing Flukes and frogs so I try to use something different if in a lake where everyone fishes the same areas.  

 

A grub like the Menace or Devils Spear also work good over weeds. Lastly, I always try the MJ rig in and over weeds as the flash and thump behind the worm makes it easy for fish to find and catches quality fish. Best part of this rig is you can use a lighter weight and it will fall through the weeds when you kill it easier than other baits & sometimes you just catch more below the service. I like a small colorado hammered blade but most guys use willow blades. When it works, it really works, worth a shot and a senko is never a bad choice anyway.

Any Texas Rigged plastic weightless or weighted cast be fished on top like a solid body frog.
